Bokashi workshop was organized as a part of the Slow Festival in Katowice in Silesia. These workshops have already became the formula with tradition inmany countries. We decided to install its in Poland. Bokashi teach art workshops environmental protection by using a method based on properties of probiotic strains of bacteria - their ability to ferment and antioxidation. We follow them mostly for children and adolescents due to educational and therapeutic qualities. Working with the original material in the form of clay, water, cane molasses, bran cereal, which under the influence of beneficial bacterias changes, shows what power resides in nature and provides the cognitive world of microorganisms. Coincidental combination of these ingredients creates leaven the dough of clay, in which microbes multiply. With such a mass one can model their own Bokashi balls - mud vehicles to transport micro-organisms in to degraded aquatic ecosystems. In this environment, the dose of bacteria derived from bullets is able to restore the biological balance. In Chorzow we have set our table with bowls for ingredients to make balls in the workshop area of the festival. There came different people, mostly children, some of theme were "brave" enough to touch balls without gloves (what, after all we wanted! touching the ground bare hand and feel it). We tipped balls workshop participants to be able to fertilize their organic flowers, lawns, and most of all bodies of water, or symbolically toss balls to their home rivers that flow through their place of living. We hope that such workshops inoculated in young budding minds of the cops thought that grows out of close contact with the ground, the rescue polluted rivers, lakes and joints. Workshops like this in a big scale would be the possibility to revitalise rivers, lakes or even seas.
It's already been started... a campaign has sprung in Bang Sai Witthaya School (Bang Sai District) in Ayutthaya Province. They are the first school to take action – where they developed a recycling program and brought awareness to their community.

This project will educate people on the risks by getting communities involved and presenting PowerPoint and presentations at schools. This project will pull together like minded people through social media platforms and give the people a voice.
Its a good thought for living believe me.

Every 20 handmade beads we make will provide access to clean water for one person. How? This school year, our handmade beads have been part of providing 16,173 people clean water in Tanzania because the Bezos Family Foundation through Students Rebuild matches beads with funding for 41 water projects that serve schools and communities. Since 20 beads = clean water for 1 person, the overall goal was to receive at least 323,460 beads. The symbol of beads for the Water Challenge because they've been used in the African culture for thousands of years. Our group made 389 paper beads that will provide clean water for nearly 20 people in Africa. We feel very proud of being part of making a difference.
Our group is working hard on promoting the 3 big Rs; by selling hand made materials, we are collecting money to promote the wetland conservation.
